This traditional Provençal farmhouse is situated near the lovely medieval fortified town of Pernes les Fontaines. The remaining fortifications of this ancient town include walls dating back to the 16th century, and several "portes" dating to the 16th and 14th centuries.
Situated between Isle sur la Sorgue and Carpentras, it is a convenient location for visiting the Luberon, Avignon, Orange and Mont Ventoux. The views of Mont Ventoux from the property are spectacular. Entrance to the property is through a stone archway into a large courtyard area with pots of olive trees, vines and flowers, and a pergola-covered dining area with barbecue at one side. On the other side, a path leads past olive trees to the swimming pool (10 x 5) with a covered area at one end, with summer kitchen, with fridge and dishwasher, and an outdoor dining area, a shower and WC. There is also a petanque court, table tennis and a vegetable garden within the grounds.
The interiors are spacious and comfortable, yet very tastefully decorated and furnished. The living room is equipped with flat screen satellite TVand DVD, and opens to a covered sitting area facing the swimming pool. There are also flat screen TVs in two of the bedrooms.
There is high speed internet access, an alarm system, as well as a baby cot and high chair. There is a low wall on one side of the courtyard, which means very young children would need to be watched, but this is otherwise a superb family holiday home.
